Random 5 on Friday - June 28

Luke, Matthew, Neal and I have gone to Boston for the weekend. The reason was because we are going to a Red Sox game tomorrow, but are planning to cram in some learning. We have already done a trolley tour and visited the Tea Party Museum (I HIGHLY recommend the museum!). My thoughts today on traveling:

1. It's a good idea to sign your passport before traveling with it. Otherwise, make sure you have your driver's license to get past TSA, and then beg a pen from someone manning a kiosk so you'll be able to use the passport to get home. 

2. Children under 12 do not have to remove their shoes for security. Corollary: adults who wear sandals because they are "slide on" probably didn't consider bare feet on the airport floor. (Glad I repacked my quart bag to cram hand sanitizer in.) 

3. Seeing a departure gate filled with mustering soldiers is emotional.  Thank you.  

4. You never need to use the bathroom until they announce a) it's almost time to board or b) the fasten seat belts for descent light is on. 

5. Looking down from above the clouds is really, really cool.

  1. I hope you guys have a fabulous weekend!

  2. I get all choked up at seeing our military men and women just about anywhere, but especially at airports, and especially when they are deboarding and running into the open arms of their families.

    1. What really hit hard was seeing them all "alone." They had been through security, so there was no family or friends with them-just this sea of camouflage.
